Cities, private companies, and public-private partnerships are taking control of their bandwidth destinies by working to ensure people and businesses have access to world-leading Internet connections. This infrastructure “revolution” is gaining great speed, with gigabit to the home deployments popping up around the country. When imagination, not inputs, is the only barrier to creativity, what new advances can be made in video, health, public safety, or research and education? What can be done with Big Data? What is the current progress and what is coming up in the future? This panel will explore the importance of innovation infrastructure and the policies surrounding its growth. Sponsored by Glen Echo Group.
